View Full NENSA Calendar

Series Details

The TD Bank Citizen Series brings together NENSA’s traditional Zak age group and Club Series into a single series of events featuring some of New England’s finest citizen races. All events that are part of a Citizen Series day are scored for Club points with all participants earning at least one point for their club. Only one distance on each day is scored for the Zak cup to ensure appropriate head-to-head competition within age groups.

Questions about the series can be directed to NENSA Staff at staff@nensa.net.


Zak Cup

NENSA Membership at the time of the race is required for Zak Cup Scoring.

Individuals are scored on the basis of the best of 5 races with a minimum of 5 needed to win the age class for men and for women the best 4 with a minimum of 4. For skiers in class 10+ (75 years and older) the best  3 for men with a minimum of 3 races needed, and best 2  with a minimum of 2 races needed for women, will be scored.

Individuals earn both overall and age group points. Overall points are determined compared to all Masters (age 30+ in the race) and age group points compare just against the five-year age group.

Points are as follows: 1st place = 25 pts. 2nd place = 20 pts. 3rd = 15. 4th = 12. 5th = 11. 6th = 10. 7th = 9. etc. to 15th = 1

Ties within age class will be broken by:
    1. Over all Zak Cup points.
    2. Head to Head races. 

If  there is still a tie after 1 and 2 then 1st place is awarded to all tied.

Club Cup

NENSA Membership at the time of the race is required for Club Scoring.

Club Affiliation can be changed up until the final race of the series with the final club designation for an individual earning points for all of that individual's points that season.

Individuals earn points for their club based on comparison within age groups only. 1st place = 10 pts. 2nd place = 9 pts. 3rd = 8, etc. 10th place and all other participants earn 1 point.
